grant program. we need to invest substantially more, on the federal government side, as an inducement to states and local governments to make the investments they need to make. man: but the federal role is going to continue to be diminished because of so many competing demands. so the expectation that the federal government will step in and infuse a lot of capital into water infrastructure, i think, is doubtful. and whether they should or not, i think, will continue to be debated. narrator: where money continues to be elusive, some cities and towns are turning their assets over to private companies, hoping the private sector can find the solutions they cannot. man: in the u.s., roughly 90% of all water and wastewater systems are still publicly owned and publicly managed. the remaining 10% are managed by privately held companies. man: the private sector has learned to become very efficient, and frequently a municipality can save themselves a significant amount of money by bringing in a private company. this is not true in all cases. there are some exceptionally well-run municipalities,

, are they not encouraging some of the violence in order to put pressure on these new fragile governments to become hard line themselves? >> absolutely, absolutely. these countries are democracies, and hopefully democracies. there's a vacuum of power and a vacuum of authority in many of these societies. so extremists are taking advantage of this vacuum and power and authority. unfortunately they don't want to see a free democratic libya or egypt or tunisia or pakistan. they want an extremist vision for their societies. we have to stand on the side of the majority to ensure that we marginalize the extremists in those societies and also the extremists who put the film together and promoted the film as well. >> i notice that your organization in the statement really did call on the muslim community to also examine the role of extremism within the muslim community, and that's a theme that president obama talked about this week as well in the u.n. speech where he was a little more forthright than he has been in the past in calling on nations to -- and leaders of nations to deal with extremism in their midst. >> t

that to? >> i think we are at a fiscal and economic cliff. i think we have pursued government spending programs that have created a debt that is out of control. at the convention come after talking, i went home to my hotel at 1:30 a.m. and i was looking on my iphone at twitter. and the comedian paa pound stone had sent a tweet that evening. i don't know her, but she said " ted cruz just said that, when his daughter was born, the debt was $5 trillion and now it is $16 trillion. what the heck did she do?" [laughter] >> you think the debt is putting the nation in crisis. >> along with government spending, is causing the dead. we have seen a growing expansion in the power of the federal government. it is crippling small businesses. >> you are the national co-chair of the obama-bided campaign. >> i would put the challenge that we have as a nation in a different context. and say that, to the extent that we are a nation in "crisis," although i would not describe it as that because i believe that we can fundamentally overcome this and that we can do it in a fairly rational and reasonable way,

monitoring the content of conversations they tell us. that is the government is keeping tabs on to whom people are talking but not what they are saying still an aclu representative says a rise in surveillance is some cause for concern. >> the people have a right to know how these extremely invasive surveillance powers are being used and if there is nothing to hide, if they're not being abused where is the harm in letting us know. >> shepard: federal judge authorized every instance of surveillance and a smokesmanned as as criminals use more and new sophisticated technology the use of orders issued by a judge and explicitly authorized by congress to obtain non-content information is simply for federal law enforcement officials to carry out their duties to protect the public and investigate violations of federal law. we knew about the death of a u.s. border agent. now there is a new report that indicates guns linked to operation fast and furious may have been involved in more killings. and we're getting word just how young some of those victims are said to have been. a live report is next.

-- no one thinks israel is about to drop a bomb on tehran. so, the difference is this is a government with a record of supporting terror and look, no one talks about this very much, but if they had a nuclear weapon, they would be too dangerous. even if you believe they would never use it. if you believe they are sane and rational and their country, their civilization would be destroyed if they dropped a bomb on someone because everyone would know it and the retaliation would be incomprehensible. even if you believe that, too bad things will happen. a lot of their neighbors will get bombs. the more of these weapons you have hanging around, the more material you have, the more it will be stolen or sold or transferred to terrorists. that brings me to the second point, which is that iran has all these extensive contacts with terrorist groups and even if the government didn't sanction it, it wouldn't be that much trouble to get girl scout cookies worth of material -- it's enough to take out 20% to 25% of washington, d.c. just that little bit. so, the prospect of spreading, in a way, dirty

told you that your government had lied to you about the attacks in egypt and libya when they claimed they were acts of a spontaneous mob in reaction to a youtube video. i said then and i repeat now, i normally would not have used such strong language and made such a bold declaration but the continuing revelations confirm that my statement was not an exaggeration. our government has lied to us. they did it knowingly. our ambassador to libya isn't dead because of some film. he is dead because we failed to heed the warnings that an attack was imminent. it took the administration two weeks to acknowledge that this was a carefully planned terrorist attack. egyptian president new it and white house knew it but ours wasn't honest with it and tried to continue the official story about it that this was all about a film that insulted moe78d. real question why would the administration embarrass itself by hoisting such a whopper on us and then thinking we wouldn't find out the truth? why would they hold a memorial for the slain ambassador and not respect that his was not an accidental death from

. early last year mr. quinn floated the idea that the federal government could bail out, that is the federal government, you, could bail out his state's pension program if illinois' finances took a turn for the worse. critics are pouncing saying states cannot give away big benefit packages and then expect the federal taxpayer to come to the rescue. "the chicago tribune" says the stampede of other states with pension red ink could lead to a federal taxpayer bill of over $2 trillion. that's with a t, and let me tell you, folks, that's just one estimate. others put it between 1 trillion and 25 trillion that we could potentially get to. lou dobbs is host of "lou dobbs tonight" on the fox business network, he's also a syndicated radio host. so governor quinn in illinois can't figure out how to get himself out of these pensions that they've overpromised and feel like they're going to have to underdeliver on, and he's considering making the rest of us pay for them? [laughter] >> he's considering, he's hoping, he's begging, he's wishing. the fact of the matter is governor quinn
